Just to recall, we had given upside target of 10420, which is the 38.2% retracement level of the entire 11171-9951 fall, after 34-DMA resistance of 10310 was taken out. Nifty yesterday touched a high of 10425 before closing at 10402, achieving this target and vindicating our view.
A decisive crossover of 10420 is required for a fresh upmove. 10480, the top made in mid-March, would be the next target, if that happens.
Traders are advised to book some profit in long positions and trail stop-loss in remaining to 10285, which is now the immediate support on the hourly chart.
